1950 Club Sedan. Abandoned restoration project but much work has been completed. Bodywork is done and car is in primer. Ad states $5K in new chrome, new WW tires and new radiator core. This one looks very promising. Asking $8,500 which sounds reasonable if description is accurate. Duluth, MN:

1950 Sedan. Believe it is a Standard Eight. Nice, presentable driver. Looks good for the asking price. This could be a great entry level Packard for someone. Asking $8,900. Georgia:

1948 Henney Hearse. Very rough and rusty and probably only good for parts. Faded sign on rear door indicates that the car was once used by an upholstery business after its funeral days were over. Seller is asking $1,500. Minnesota.

1935 1201 Sedan. Solid body, car is an unfinished street rod project with a Chevy V8. At least it appears that the body has not been altered. Ad states that it is a 1934, but it is a 1935 model and I'm reasonably certain that it is a 1201 Standard Eight Touring Sedan. Asking $12,000. NC location:

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/763571769157625/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3A8ded9eac-7a82-4e16-9acf-2231f6570f28

1953 Clipper Sedan. This is a base model Clipper, but ad has it incorrectly identified as a Deluxe model. Cheezy repaint in an incorrect color over obvious rust and an even cheezier incorrect interior in a modern fabric. Car also has an incorrect grille and hood ornament off of a 1951. Probably way overpriced at $8,500, but car does run and drive and has had much recent work done to it, including new brakes. Tennessee:

Few new ones this morning on FB:

1951 300. An antique store in Mississippi was apparently using this Packard to promote their business and now they want it gone. Unrestored and not running but does not look actually too bad. Has a 1952 model hood bird. Car is indoors, so it looks like this business is at one of those antique malls. Only $2,200:

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/858610679371750/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3Ac2ef1bba-f190-40e0-a95a-3bbd96d64cfe

1955 Patrician. Looks clean inside and out, but back end is dragging on the ground, so I would assume that there are issues with the Torsion Level ride system, among other things. Asking 14K. Interior is nice. Alabama:

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/743894167802792/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3Ac2ef1bba-f190-40e0-a95a-3bbd96d64cfe

1948 Sedan. Not sure of model, either a Standard or a Deluxe. Runs, but needs a lot of work. Someone started redoing the interior, but fabric does not look original. Asking $3,500. Texas.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/400065765721621/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3A6b15ddf8-de86-431f-b658-f94a6718e627

1955 Patrician. Good driver quality car. See some rust spots along the bottom edges but appears to be pretty solid overall and presentable as is. Seller is asking $9K. Miami, FL Craigslist:

https://miami.craigslist.org/brw/cto/d/fort-lauderdale-1955-packard-patrician/7718206719.html

1956 Clipper Constellation HT. Needs complete restoration, but West Coast body is very solid. Ad states car is originally from Oregon. Seller is apparently liquidating his collection as he has a number of other cars for sale including two Franklins, a 1935 Hupmobile, a 1951 Nash and a 1959 Edsel Station Wagon among others. Los Angeles Craigslist:

https://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst/cto/d/oxnard-1956-packard-clipper/7716767072.html

1956 Super Clipper Panama HT. Very clean original car with one older repaint. Looks sharp in Color Scheme PM (Jamaican Yellow over Dover White). Estate Sale. Think this one is well worth the asking price of $12K. Odo shows 43K miles and this might be correct. Michigan:

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/710208947631692/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3Adef3f97f-deae-40e7-9cf3-e2a95743722d

1949 (23rd Series) Club Sedan. Believe it is a Standard Eight. Solid barn find. Needs total resto, but body looks exceptionally straight, though there appears to be some collision damage to the right rear quarter panel in the tail lamp area. Asking $3,300. Michigan

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/3922242394673403/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3Adef3f97f-deae-40e7-9cf3-e2a95743722d

1941 Clipper. Rough unrestored. Rust in rockers and above side grilles in front fenders. Seller states engine is free. Asking $4K. Maine.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1560822024460651/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3Adef3f97f-deae-40e7-9cf3-e2a95743722d

Couple of new Facebook Marketplace postings:

1948 LWB sedan. Not sure of the model, but it does not appear to be too bad for the asking price of only $3,999. At least the interior is not totally trashed like on a lot of these cars. New Jersey:

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/412291991302252/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3A9c6ddbb8-6c51-4d12-9376-d08b22df4d70

23rd Series Sedan parts car. Again, not sure of the model. Looks like an abandoned resto project. Sheet metal does look pretty good and what more could you want for the asking price of only $500. Michigan:

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2980224462120133/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3A9c6ddbb8-6c51-4d12-9376-d08b22df4d70

1947 Clipper LWB sedan. Ad states the proverbial "ran when parked", so I guess that it is no longer running. Tires are flat. Car was originally owned by a funeral home. Relatively solid looking, with some visible rust in the front fenders over the side grilles, which is typical of early Clippers. In one of the photos, I am seeing what appears to be a 1936 Henney hearse on a trailer, so I'm not sure what's up with that car. Asking $5K. Ohio:

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/680207827520842/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3Adad8e29c-07e4-469e-b4b3-079ffb6f199f

1956 Executive Sedan. Very decent looking original car. Some wear visible on driver's seat, but original interior looks clean otherwise. Believe color scheme is Scheme H (Adriatic Blue Metallic). Odometer shows 58K and car looks it. Asking $15K. Tennessee:

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1056246049001789/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3Adad8e29c-07e4-469e-b4b3-079ffb6f199f

1941 110 Coupe. Partially disassembled for restoration. Looks decent, but obviously needs quite a bit of work. Driver's side front fenders look rough. Rest of body not bad:

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/415638530923666/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3A1d7b017e-41f5-4c88-8a91-a1272dd5005f

Hi Ozstatman. Thanks for posting those pics of the 1939 Henney. Very impressive car. Noticed that it has the very rare cormorant hood ornament that is actually a radio antenna. Unusual that it would be on a professional car. Only other time I saw one was on a 1939 Darrin owned by Ralph Morano of New Jersey.

PackardDon and I were discussing Henney professional cars after a recent post I made in the Packard vehicles for sale forum, and I recalled having this photo of a 22nd Series Henney flower car. It was taken at the PAC National meet in Pittsburgh, PA in 1986. Thought I would share with everyone. Very interesting vehicle as it is a combination hearse/flower car with a compartment underneath for a casket.

PackardDon. Can certainly understand how you feel when you see a car you once owned being ruined by a subsequent owner. I certainly learned something new today from you as I had never heard of Henney built service cars. I took another look at the ad photos and saw that the side windows on that Henney were blocked out, so it looked like a panel delivery. Never knew that Henney produced something like this. Funeral homes do need a vehicle to transport remains back to the parlor for embalming and preparation and you would not want the public to be able to see in, hence the blocked out side panels. A traditional hearse has side windows because you do want to be able to see the casket along with all of the funeral wreaths on the way to the cemetery. I once had a friend who was a funeral director, so I am somewhat familiar with the process. The service cars must be rare as I do not recall ever seeing one. I have seen Henney flower cars from this era and have photos of one in my collection from years ago.

This one just came up today on FB Marketplace and thought I would share.

1956 Caribbean Convertible. Unfortunately, it is probably the worst one I have ever seen. Probably beyond restoration at this point and useful only for parts. The seller has a large yard filled with other vintage cars including some other Packards. I can see what looks like a 1956 Clipper, a 1956 400 and a 22nd Series Henney Hearse in the background, but there may be others. All cars in the yard are for sale. Ottsville, PA. Ottsville is in Southeastern PA near the NJ State line:

Couple more:

1948 Henney Ambulance. Rough unrestored but looks complete. Rear quarter glass shows original Ambulance etching. Probably way overpriced at the asking price of $15K. Texas:

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/667093385637132/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3Ad1d31601-4c86-45fc-8836-d231bdb4e84

1951 250 Convertible. Restored car, looks very attractive in Packard Ivory with red interior. Asking $38K. Louisiana.
